EOL (End of Life)

PostgreSQL versions no longer under community support

An EOL ("End of Life") PostgreSQL version is a major version which is not supported by the community any more. Once a version has been declared EOL, no further minor releases will be made, It will no longer receive updates of any kind.

PostgreSQL life cycle

In general, a PostgreSQL major version is supported for 5 (five) years after its initial release. It will be declared EOL around the same time the latest major version is released.

The scheduled EOL for each major release is publicised on the Versioning Policy page.

Alternative support

Some third-party vendors may provide support for EOL major versions, though typically this is limited to critical bugfixes, and does not represent a continuation of minor releases in the same way as those provided by the community.
